DeFi is about empowering users and giving them the freedom to use their funds in any way they see fit even if it means users can easily move on to another protocol. This proposal aims to give pie holders predictability that they will never be limited in their actions in any way unless its deemed necessary for the security of the protocol. Specifically I would like PieDAO to make a clear statement on never ever implementing any form of censorship.
It has come to my attention that in response to the Enso Finance Vampire attack a form of censorship was being considered and implemented as can be seen in this pull request. Once merged and deployed this would allow the
exitPool function only to be called by non smart contracts and/or only addresses which are not blacklisted.
As stated in the summary I believe any form of censorship which limits composability and user freedom should never be implemented or even considered.
Pie holders should be able to have trust PieDAO governance participants have their best interest at heart to build the best possible product for them. Additionally smart contract behavior should be predictable as unexpected changes in the implementation can lead to loss of funds in third party protocols.
I also believe the main strength of DeFi is composability and freedom of users to use protocols however they see fit. Any censorship on how specific addresses can interact with the protocol goes against this.
PieDAO should make a written statement on that it will never limit user or developer freedom purely to restrict the actions of competitors unless its necessary for the security of the protocol. This written statement should be voted on through snapshot and every future proposal should not go against this statement. Unless the statement is specifically invalidated by a future proposal.
NOTE: This poll is only gauge interest for a snapshot vote. Not if you actually in favor or against this proposal.
